Club Space

For over 15 years, Space has been Miami’s dark, after hours club of choice. The 24-hour Downtown venue (open only on weekends) has been through its ups and downs but new management—including III Points cofounder David Sinopoli—have revived Space back to its purest form. Now, along with some really strong DJ bookings, Space represents all that’s great about Miami nightlife: inclusivity, tropical vibes and staying up way too late. If you make it to sunrise (which should be enjoyed from the rooftop terrace), keep your eyes peeled for the complimentary cafecito that’s passed around.

Basement

Welcome to Basement, where your options are wonderfully all over the place. Want to bowl with your friends on funky lanes? Sure. How about some ice skating on an adorable indoor rink? Yup—that’s an option. And, of course, there’s plenty of dancing, everything from open format hip-hop to Carl Cox and the occasional live performer. Basement is less of a club and more of an adult playground.  Photograph: World Red Eye

LIV Miami

You’ve heard it in songs, seen it on TV and possibly dreamt about it in your sleep. LIV is Miami Beach’s most famous club. The reason? Well, there has been no shortage of TMZ-worthy moments to happen at LIV throughout the years. Every weekend, you can expect to see a small army of celebs huddled inside the DJ booth. Regulars include Bieber, Calvin Harris and about 75 percent of the Kardashian clan. It is a glamorous affair that will certainly cost you—but you’re going to wake up the next morning with a story.

The Electric Pickle Company
Nightlife

The Electric Pickle Company

Wynwood’s electro hotspot is a neighborhood favorite where locals and in-the-know tourists flock weekend after weekend. It’s cozy—just one room on the second floor—but filled with veteran patrons who know the right way to go clubbing. There will be dancing, great music and cigarette smoke circling around the Pickle’s glorious disco ball.
